Sullivan Sails is a 2D animated series for children aged 3 to 5. It encourages a love of adventure, exploration and imagination in young audiences, while introducing them to incredible facts about geography, the environment, and international cultures.
Sullivan is 5 and he is fascinated by maps. He wants to be a cartographer (they make maps) and explorer when he grows up. Every day he opens up his atlas and travels around the world using his imagination.
He is usually accompanied by his imaginary friend Benji who is a talking fox, who was a world-famous Navy Admiral. Benji is an old-style explorer and expert navigator – so his skills and experience come in handy when helping the animals and friends they meet along the way.
In the first show, Benji and Sullivan travel to the rainforest to find a very rare butterfly, but it’s nowhere to be seen. When they encounter a sloth, they discover that with a little patience, good things will come to you.
